Hi fellow list members,
I am a newcomer to ubuntu linux and tex. Starting from a fresh installation
with ubuntu 11.10, I installed texlive 2011 from its iso image on a dvd.
Initially, tlmgr didn't work for me as I was denied access. Thanks to help
from Stefan Löffler, I used the following command to get ownership of the
texlive installation:
chown -R "$USER" /usr/local/texlive
After this, I was able to proceed with the command (also changed to the
default net repositor on the tlmgr gui):
 tlmgr update --all
But at the end, I received the following response :

This is a summary of all `failed' messages:
